2012 Kawasaki D-Tracker 150 – Offroad Style On The Road at RM9,689

June 21st, 2012 11:24 pm by

Kawasaki has just recently launched a gem in their bike lineup. This is Kawasaki D-Tracker 150. Before this, we are accustomed to one of the popular scrambler bike from Kawasaki that is the KLX150S, but this D-Tracker differentiate itself from KLX150S by having smaller tyre for both wheel at 14-inch but with wider profile compared to the KLX150S at 19-inch for the front and 16-inch at the rear.

Another great features is the 5-step adjustable Uni-Track rear suspension to better suits your riding style. Both of the brakes are equipped with single disc brake type with 212mm for the front and 156mm for the rear. If you are still thinking about the intake system of this bike, I can assure you that this bike is still using carburetor or more specific Keihin NCV 24. The 250cc D-Tracker X comes with the fuel injection system with Keihin 34mm single barrel throttle body and I thought this should comes with it too.

Also included is the electric starter for easier startup. One of the reason people like to use scrambler or offroad bike for daily uses is because of the higher strength and higher durability of the chassis and parts of the bikes. This can make the bike last longer than normal moped or automatic bike. You also don’t have to worry with bumps and pothole on the road if you accidentally get into them since this kind of bike are ready to take the abuse. Anyway, it might hurts your butt.

    Hahahahaha what narrowminded you are shauran tasuke ricky, must be inbreed from indon, spanish and japanese blood wannabe who doesn’t realize how stupid our malaysian bike flooded with too many kapchai, and for your bloody information we got kapchai with DOHC 150cc spec. Does suzuki belang ring any bell inbreed? How dumb you are.

    As for this post, 14″ rim & tyre couple with expensive pricing, i rather take mle XTM which not just better looking, the spec of the bike itself far convincing than kawasaki itself.
